Our Children, Young People and Families' Plan
We want Dorset to be the best place to be a child, where communities thrive and families are supported to be the best they can be.
How we created this plan
The Dorset Strategic Alliance for Children and Young People developed this plan in partnership with:
- Dorset Council
- input from lots of colleagues who work for the children and young people of Dorset and their families
- invaluable feedback from representative parents and carers
Most importantly this plan has been developed with the wonderful input of so many children and young people in Dorset, who told us about the things that are most important to them.
Our Children, Young People and Families' Plan aims to bring together the work the partnership will be doing in detail. This will help the people who are going to deliver the plan to have a good overview of everything we've committed to do. It will also help everyone understand each other's roles and help us to coordinate our work effectively.
The Dorset Strategic Alliance for Children and Young People
The Dorset Strategic Alliance for Children and Young People is a multi-agency partnership which brings together senior people from:
- the police
- early years settings
- the voluntary sector
- the community sector
They shape and transform services for children and young people that achieve improved outcomes.
How we'll know we've made a difference
We will use a range of indicators and measures to monitor the impact of our plan on improving outcomes for children and young people. These indicators will form the basis of the Performance Framework setting out baselines and targets. We will develop this Performance Framework to support this plan and our progress reporting.
